CC)--The Enid Mayor and Board of Commissioners Tuesday night voted to  apply for a loan to fund replacing the aging waterline that goes through Enid’s Southern Heights neighborhood.

The water board possibly will consider the loan application as soon as its next meeting, scheduled for mid-January in Oklahoma City. The waterline project, estimated at $1.8 million, is set to go out to bid early next year, with construction starting in early spring.
